Texans release tight end Ryan Griffin

The Texans released veteran tight end Ryan Griffin, an unsurprising transaction following his arrest during the NFL draft for allegedly breaking a hotel window.

Griffin, 29, was charged with vandalism and public intoxication.

He allegedly broke a window at Hotel Indigo, according to Nashville, Tenn., police officials. The incident occurred shortly after the Texans drafted San Diego State tight end Kahale Warring in the third round.
